Sound the Feasting Horn: Syracuse Will Join ACC in 2013 (Troy Nunes Is An Absolute Magician)

How do you win a war like the one the Syracuse Orange just won? You kill your opponent with kindness. Or at least not object, public disdain. While West Virginia bullied their way out and Pitt tried to strong-arm their way out as well, DOC Gross and Syracuse played it cool and have now come to an agreement with the Big East to move to the Atlantic Coast Conference after the 2012-13 athletic season…

What Does Syracuse’s Early Departure Mean for Pitt? (Cardiac Hill)

The big news today was the announcement by the Big East that the conference will let Syracuse leave in 2013 for a payment of $7.5 million. This agreement fell under the radar a bit – no one knew or really even thought that both sides were working towards a deal.

ACC Kickoff: 10 Stories to Watch (Fox Sports Carolinas)

The ACC’s annual Football Kickoff should be more interesting than it has been for some time because there’s no shortage of storylines to follow. Coaches and players from the ACC’s 12 teams will gather at the Grandover Resort just outside of Greensboro, N.C., beginning Sunday to meet with the media and discuss the upcoming season. Some of the topics will be similar to recent years, but there will also be some new items bandied about…

Al Groh Breaks Down Georgia Tech Defense (Atlanta Journal-Constitution)

From my interview with Al Groh for the “10 things” series, Groh offered a handful of observations about a few players I asked about, which I haven’t gotten to posting. Without further ado… On T.J.
